Fussy and Fancy DT Recipe: 3 Papers, 2 Embellishments, 1 Ribbon

Well, it's time for another challenge at Fussy and Fancy and I can't believe how fast time is flying by nowadays.  Still been having troubles with my car and the weather on top of that.  I've been terrified of storms since I was a young child and as I've grown older, the fear's only gotten worse, especially with the recent tornados.  I sure will be glad when the weather decides to settle down and become stable again!  Yesterday, it was a mix of sun and rain all day.  I was over at my DBF's house and after dinner we decided we want ice cream.  We were going to go to the place we always go to, which is less than 2 miles away from his house.  But, at the last second, we decided we wanted Dairy Queen instead and drove the other direction into town, about 12-15 miles away.  On the way back, I kept looking at the sky and commenting how weird it looked.  The sun was shining, but the sky was as dark as what I have ever seen and it just looked eerie!  I was amazed by how fast the weather and skies were changing.  By the time we get home it's torrential downpours and storming.  Come to find out that a tornado touched down with no watches or warnings whatsoever less than 2 miles from his house.  It touched down right by the ice cream place we always go to.  Thankfully, there were no injuries, but lots of uprooted trees, overturned cars, and damaged houses.  I just can't believe that there was no warning whatsoever, it literally came out of nowhere!!!!

But anyways, this week at Fussy and Fancy, we have a recipe for you to follow:  3 papers, 2 embellishments, and 1 ribbon.  I decided to make another birthday card for my stash and I inked up a stamp I haven't used in a while, Little Birthday Fairy from Lili of the Valley.  These LOTV stamps are adorable and I have really added to my collection since I stumbled upon them around Christmas time.  I colored this cutie with my Copics and added lots of Diamond Stickles everywhere.  I used three different papers from Kaisercraft, my two embellishments were my flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and my bling from Recollections.  I also used a lace/ribbon from Wild Orchid Crafts and I love how the edges have a bit of pink color to them.  The sentiment is also from LOTV.

Here's a shot of the inside, which I used some of the same papers and my Deckled Rectangle Spellbinders.  Hope you like it and can't wait to see what you come up with this week at Fussy and Fancy!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:


  1. This is a lovely card, Tiara! I love the LOTV images and I also love the way the inside of yourr card echoes the design of the front - good work!
